The role of the School Board, as set out in the Education Directorate Ordinance 1976, is to determine the educational policy and curriculum of the school to assess the physical, financial and staffing needs of the school, and to develop the relationship between the school and the community. The Board is comprised of three parents, two teachers, the Principal, a community representative and Secretary.
The Board works closely with the school community, the staff and P&C Association. It has the responsibility to assist staff in meeting the needs of the community. The Board is required to meet four times per year. Parents are always welcome to attend. Upcoming meetings are advertised in the newsletter. The Board report can be found on the school's website.
The school calendar is published at the beginning of each term and sent home to parents. Upcoming events are also advertised in the school newsletter, on the notice board in front of the school, on the home page of this website and on our school Facebook page.
The school song, The Promise of Tomorrow was written by a teacher at Theodore during its foundation year in 1991.
Here at Theodore
We're proud of our school and we all know
It's here we'll learn to live and grow
In knowledge and understanding.
mmm mmm mmm mm mm mmmm mmmm
Our valley is a special place
Where past and the present come face to face
So many things in our world to share
We must learn to love and learn to care.
The blue is for the deepest sky
Stretched out for us to follow.
The gold, our sun which gives us life
And the promise of tomorrow

Smoking on School Grounds
Smoking on the grounds of ACT Public Schools has not been permitted since 1 January 2008. The school grounds extend as far as the footpath at the front of the school, (including the area around the gates), the car park and oval. If you are unsure of the boundaries of the school, a map is on display at the front office.
Class rolls are marked both morning and afternoon by the class teacher and all student absences are recorded. The teacher records an S when written advice has been received that the child has been sick or an L when written advice states that the child has been on leave for that particular day. If the class teacher does not receive any information in regard to the student's absence then an A is recorded for the specific day. All student absences are totalled at the end of each term and recorded on student records. Staff will send home letters requesting an explanation for all unexplained absences.
Students must return the acceptable use of IT forms before any log on to the Internet will be issued. As students return completed IT forms, they will be informed of their logon details.
